I know somebody was asking about Midway's CRJ200's that were parked after the bankruptcy. Here's the latest and greatest courtesy of the 18 mar issue of AW&ST:
CRJ200s FIND SHELTER
Fourteen of the two dozen Bombardier CRJ200 50-seat regional jets left idle when Midway Airlines downsized last fall have now been spoken for, with repainting and reoutfitting now underway at the manufacturer's heavy maintenance facility and paint shop in Clarksburg, W. Va. According to Bombardier officials, Mesa Airlines has purchased two CRJs for its new Denver-based Frontier JetExpress service that starts Apr. 7; two more will go to Air Wisconsin Airlines for its United Express regional service; and another 10 will go to Air Canada's consolidated regional network as replacements for Fokker F28s that are being retired.
